ipv6 urls

URLs are written like this: protocol://host-or-address:port/path-or-function

What happens with ipv6 is that addresses contains colons (“:”) , so how do you specify the port number in your web browser ? The same happens when you do an scp: you usually do scp user@host:path/to/file /local/path, how can you differenciate the host part and the path which are also seperated with a colon ?

The answer is: USE BRACKETS !
an ipv6 url can be written like this:

Also, a scp command with ipv6 addresses can be like this:

  • scp user@[fe80::abcd:abcd:abcd:abcd]:/etc/resolv.conf /tmp

I hope it’s usefull !

Crossover Chromium: google’s chrome browser for osx and linux

Codeweavers, the company which is famous for releasing Crossover (a kind of windows emulator for linux and osx, based on the famous wine project) have released crossover chromium which is a package that contains just enough of crossover and a build of chromium to be able to run it. There’s an OSX and a Linux build. Chromium is google’s project which is the base of the chrome browser. Crossover released the packages 11 days after google chrome got out, this is a proof of concept, wine and crossover have became mature, codeweavers are reactive, but becarefull, it’s not advised to use crossover chromium as day to day browser for now (anyway, I think I’ll try to do it !).

Get the OSX package here, and ubuntu 32 bit pacakge here, and Have Fun !

Update: on osx, my chromium keeps crashing, I think this might because of my firewall, on linux, the windowing is quite slow but for me it works.
